Description-



Fast growing and easy to care for Lemongrass is a delightful addition to your kitchen garden or home landscape. Lemongrass is a tall green grass that has a mild lemon flavor typically used in Asian cuisines. Medicinally it is used to relieve cough and nasal congestion. The essential oil is both fragrant and antifungal properties it is used in perfumes, soaps and deodorants. Lemongrass is harvested for both the stalk and the foliage. The inner bulb of the stalk is the main part used in cooking, to harvest, cut, twist or break off a stalk that is at least 1/4" thick as close to the ground as possible. Remove the outer woody fibrous parts and leaves. Extra Lemongrass stalks can be refrigerated or frozen whole or chopped up to 6 months. The leaves (fresh or dried) can be chopped and steeped in boiling water for 5 minutes or longer to make a delicious tea. Thai cooks use the top of the grass in tea, soups, and stews for a strong lemon aroma. Consider planting Lemongrass around a patio or pool as its oils repel insects such as mosquitos.
